EDM #17 A Musical Instrument

I decided to stop doing the challenges in order and just pick one randomly from now on and this is the one my finger landed on.
I am really haveing fun with these challenges because I am actually learning to do things I've never tried before. Never haveing had any training in art, as I'm sure is very evident, and only doodling in the past, I find it very relaxing and I want to learn all I can to improve.

Tonniece, I thought I've posted a comment on this sketch. I guess it didn't take. So, now I get to admire it for the second time and write about it! :)

I love the subject of this sketch: lute. I think it is such a dreamy musical instrument. You did an excellent job in drawing the lute with all its details and capturing the sentiment. Bravo, Tonniece!

Thanks Luci

I was thrilled that it actually looked like a Lute, to tell you the truth.
